The FAFSA will become available on October 1, 2018. The ASU priority filing date is January 1, 2019. Students hoping to be considered for Barrett scholarships must have their FAFSA on file by January 1.

How will I receive my scholarship award money?

How will I receive my scholarship award money?

Your scholarship money will be deposited to your ASU student account approximately one week before classes begin in the fall. The funds will first be applied to any charges, such as tuition, that you owe ASU. If scholarship funds remain and you have set up direct deposit with ASU Student Accounts, the remainder of the money will be deposited into your bank account a few days before the beginning of the semester. If you do not have direct deposit set up with ASU and would like to set one up, you may enroll online through My ASU. Please sign up at least 15 days before the beginning of the semester to allow adequate processing time.

If you do not have direct deposit, any remaining scholarship funds will be mailed to the address you have provided ASU. Please be sure your correct local address is on file with ASU as Student Accounts will charge students a fee if checks need to be reissued. Once the scholarship funds have posted to your account, you can view the details via My ASU.

If you have further questions about the disbursement of your funds, please visit https://students.asu.edu/financialaid or call Student Accounts at 1-855-278-5080.
